From the research I've done, an athame is a ceremonial dagger used in ceremonial magic. As to how it's made, I'm not sure.

In most of ceremonial magick it's just called a "dagger." Though the term "athame" first appears in the Key of Solomon, the term is mostly used by Wiccans and other modern pagans.

It should also be noted that the traditional element associated with the dagger is Air, though it is common for Wiccans and some other pagans to associate it with Fire (switching it with the wand). It's also a more central and all-purpose tool in Wicca than in more traditional magick.

And Aqua, unless you're a metal-smith you probably won't be making one so much as finding or buying one and then blessing and consecrating it.

First question: What is an athame

"traditionally" speaking, it's a ritual dagger with a double-edged blade, with a black handle that use to store and direct energy, draw a circle, cut an opening when leaving the circle. Athame shouldnt be use to actually cut something, with one exception of cutting handfasting cake

Second question: how is it made?

It can be made from various metal such as stainless steel or copper, some can be made out of carved stone or even wood.
